The Typhon Expanse was a region of space located in the Fries Posnikov and Typhon sectors of the Beta Quadrant and was well-known for its spectacular celestial phenomena.

In 2278, the Soyuz-class starship, USS Bozeman, was assigned to the Expanse on routine patrol. At the same time, several other starships were dispatched to the nearby Benecia sector to counter a fleet detected on the Klingon side of the border. That fleet proved to be a tactical feint, as the real attack force -- a single, over-built and over-armed cruiser, the Sosoy Tuj under Captain Kozara -- attempted to slip through the Expanse and attack nearby Starbase 12. The Bozeman managed to detect Kozara's ship and engaged it (even though overmatched). After dropping a warning buoy and leading the Sosoy Tuj out of jamming range, the Bozeman disappeared without a trace, entering a temporal causality loop. Its actions, however, allowed Starbase 12 to go on full alert and recall the fleet from Benecia Sector, effectively thwarting the Klingon attack plan. (TNG novel: Ship of the Line)

Deep Space 5 and the Typhon Expanse.

Ninety years later, the USS Enterprise-D entered the region and experienced the same causality loop, leading to a collision with the Bozeman and destroying the Enterprise repeated times as the loop repeated. Thankfully, Lieutenant Commander Data managed to solve the situation and both starships were able to exit the loop. As a result, the Bozeman was over 90 years out of time, and the Enterprise was 17 days out of time. (TNG episode: "Cause and Effect")

In 2381, the Typhon Expanse was the location where the Breen Confederacy, Gorn Hegemony, Holy Order of the Kinshaya, Romulan Star Empire, Tholian Assembly, and Tzenkethi Coalition negotiated a political, military and economic alliance, known as the Typhon Pact. (ST novel: A Singular Destiny)

A map of the Typhon Expanse.

The Typhon Expanse is a region of space with unusual temporal properties. Part of the Expanse lies in the Typhon sector. In the 24th century, the Federation facilities Deep Space 4, Deep Space 5 and Starbase 185 were located near the Expanse.

The USS Bozeman entered the Expanse in 2278 and did not return. Starfleet had presumed the Bozeman lost, but, in 2368, the vessel emerged from a temporal rift and collided with the USS Enterprise-D, destroying both ships and creating a temporal causality loop.

The loop repeated several times until Enterprise-D second officer Data sent a short message into the next loop, and, after several attempts, finally stopped the loop, saving both the Enterprise-D and Bozeman.

According to Enterprise-D Captain Jean-Luc Picard, the Typhon Expanse, as of 2368, remained largely unexplored. (TNG: "Cause and Effect")

Later that same year, Helena Bourget undertook a medical mission for the Arkrand Society and did not contact any members of her family for over four months. As one of the Starfleet vessels assigned to explore the Expanse, the USS Huntly discovered her and her ship safe and sound, accompanying her to Starbase Expanse 3. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Dakota")

By 2372, Starfleet devoted more resources to exploring and colonising the Typhon Expanse and the area surrounding it. The USS Cantabrian was one of the starships assigned to the area around the Typhon Expanse, and Starfleet took over and built several starbases in the area, including Starbase Expanse 3, Starbase Expanse 4 and Starbase Expanse 12. The Devil's Cradle was also on the edge of the Typhon Expanse. (Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions: "Catalyst, Part One", "Catalyst, Part Two", "An Innocent Time")
